Take a step back in time to the land of the pioneers of early Natal and experience the peace and tranquility offered on an original sugar estate. The estate was established nearly a century ago by its founders Douglas Liege and Zillah Hulett. After a trip to Ireland, they decided to name the estate “Collisheen” in memory of a town they had visited and enjoyed.
Through the years they ran Collisheen as a cattle and dairy farm, timber plantation, cotton plantation and of course, a sugar estate.The next generation, Neil and Morag Hulett, who took over the farming operation after Douglas’ untimely death, set and broke numerous world records on the conservation front, most importantly being the first people in the world to breed Cheetah successfully in captivity.
The third generation, Wayne, Shirleen and Jacqui took over the operation when Neil and Morag retired. After running the sugar operation for some years, Wayne and Shirleen decided to diversify and built the wedding and functions venue in 2000.
Located on a sugar farm and set amongst magnificent old trees, the estate offers private
function facilities that are exclusively yours for your special day. Panoramic views of undulating
sugar fields are complemented by the warm “family” hospitality of the staff at the estate –
making this a private function facility like no other.
